6 Tips to Make Curly or Frizzy Hair Detangling Easier

By Brandon | January 12, 2023

Maintaining textured hair can be a real pleasure or a source of stress and pain. Detangling is the step that will set the tone for your haircare routine. Good preparation and execution will save you time and above all make this step pleasant and healthy for you and your hair. You probably already have techniques that work for you, but here are a few that might be helpful:

Start with hydrated hair

Whether you detangle your hair with hair tools (brushes or combs) or your fingers, the moisture in your hair is a key factor in detangling your hair. Hydrating your hair is essential when detangling because it improves its elasticity and makes it easy to manage. This makes it easier to pass your hair tool and/or fingers through your hair. Moisturizing your hair is therefore something imperative to do before and, for certain hair types, throughout detangling your hair. Detangling dry hair can cause excessive hair breakage and pain. Not great!

Always detangle your hair in sections

Detangling hair without sectioning is the best way to miss knots. Using sections allows you to give each part the attention it needs, which will make your life easier and avoid driving you crazy.

Apply the right products

As has been said previously, hair hydration is essential. However, sometimes using only water is not enough. Certain hair types require products such as oils and conditioners that help lubricate the hair and separate strands easily, causing less pain and damage. Now, buying the first product that appears on the internet is not necessarily the best solution. Choose products that are suitable for your hair type and contain the least number of products that are harmful to you.

Use the right tools

When it comes to detangling, there are 3 types of people: those who do it by hand, those who only use tools, and those who use both. Hand detangling allows you to be gentler with your curls, leading to less breakage and pain. If you want a little more precision you can use a comb or a detangling brush. Note that it is important to choose tools adapted to your hair. An effective brush for straight hair can be a source of pain and breakage for frizzy hair.

Start from the ends and work your way up to the roots  

It is advisable to start combing the ends of your hair while slowly working your way from the shaft to the roots. Starting detangling from the roots causes knots to move from the roots to the ends, causing pain, damage, breakage, tears and crying.

Pigtail each section when finished

This step helps you separate already detangled hair from hair that needs detangling. This also helps prevent knots from re-forming, which we clearly don't want.
